Oh, I can, and actually I'll do that (see http://lists.debian.org/debian-openoffice/2009/03/msg00443.html), but that will cause OOo to link
agsinst both openssl (directly) and  gnutls (via curl). I don't think
that is perfect :-)

I also agree with that, and it was a totally braindead decision for OOo
to start using OpenSSL instead of GNUTLS...
